Nigeria held Cameroon to a 0-0 draw in Tuesday’s international friendly at Stadion Wiener Neustadt.

The Super Eagles headed into the encounter on the back of their 1-0 defeat to the Indomitable Lions and in an effort to avoid a second consecutive loss, Gernot Rohr named a strong squad for the encounter.

Maduka Okoye retained his place in goal despite reports making the rounds that he will make way for Apoel goalkeeper Francis Uzoho.

Galatasaray defender Valentine Ozornwafor, who also played well last time out, was handed his first start while Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho and Paul Onuachu led the attack.

Cameroon coach Toni Conceicao, meanwhile, named Bayern Munich centre-forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting in attack and started Devis Epassy in goal.

The game began with both sides aiming to outwit each other but despite their efforts, they could not open the scoring in the early minutes of the game.

Cameroon dominated most of the first half but Nigeria goalkeeper Okoye was at his best to deny the Indomitable Lions from scoring.

In an effort to break the deadlock, Nigeria coach Rohr replaced Onuachu with Terem Moffi in the 46th minute.

Cameroon also introduced Stephane Bahoken for Choupo-Moting while Pierre Kunde was replaced by Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, who scored the only goal in the first outing.

Notwithstanding the substitutions, the game ended with both sides failing to find the back of the net in the encounter.

The Super Eagles will next take on Mexico in another international friendly scheduled for July 4.

The games have been put together as part of Nigeria's preparation for the World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde Islands in August and September, respectively. (Goal)
